PicksKing Modded Texture Compilation PMTC V2.2


Recommended Posts

No tree shadows mod works in 1.5.5 for me, when combined with Starway's scenery version 1.1.

 

There is something in PicksKing's compilation, though, which is not compatible with 1.5.5 - the forests do not render anymore. Pity, 'cause it was my favourite scenery mod (on the other hand, no forests means better fps :D).

i7 9700K @ stock speed, single GTX1070, 32 gigs of RAM, TH Warthog, MFG Crosswind, Win10.

Then it must be Barthek. I'm running vanilla Barthek right now and it won't render any forests with the no trees mod enabled.

If you have problems with the trees then keep all files in

 

"c:\...\DCS World\Mods\terrains\CaucasusBase\Structures\High\EDM"

 

as original. The easiest way to do so:

 

1 restore the original files via repair or deactivate the mod via JSGME or whatever you use.

2 unpack the mod somewhere else. Not into the main folder.

3 get into this folder, navigate to "Mods\terrains\CaucasusBase" and delete the folder named "structures"

4 copy over the remaining files into the main folder.

 

Now you should have tree shadows again and the trees look a little strange with their color and brightness fluctuation, as the originals do look. But no more problems with missing trees.

I cant do anything more because I am not a programmer. Seems like everything else is up to 2.5. Lets hope it will come soon as possible.

Thanks for the mod. I have a "problem" though. When I activate it, my trees are gone(The ones outside cities).

 

 

My texture compilation contains the no-tree-shadow-mod from mustang. The current version of dcs is not any more compatible with mustangs mod so do the following:

"c:\...\DCS World\Mods\terrains\CaucasusBase\Structures\High\EDM"

Any chance this will be updated with Barthek's 7.0 textures?

 

No. Maybe I will make an own texture mod but only for DCS 2.5 if its possible. Not earlier.

Thanks for sharing your lovely compilation!

 

Just curious which terrain textures are actually used?

 

EDIT: Nevermind, stupid question. Great work!

Yes works fine. You only need to remove the tree files of the integrated "no tree shadow mod" by mustangs as described in post #28

This is where Viggen feels "home" ..

 

thanks to all the hard workers for the great stuff!!

 

we are coming to a point where landscape - in a computer simulator - can be enjoyed as landscape, know what I mean?

It is the ultimate joy for a simpilot to fly around, and to see things look like in real.

After 28 years of flying more or less all important sims starting on C64, Amiga, P486, P586, .... DCS together with THIS ONE is ... simply speaking ... "when a dream of a boy comes true ..."

 

Now I will stop blab blab *sorry* :music_whistling: and go to "my hangar" and see what "my Viggen" is doin' .....

Still interested? It's my standard terrain. Cannot fly Caucasus without it. Colors are just right (others are too bland or too garish). But, most important for me as a heli flyer: no fake trees blocking my LOS but allow AI to see, track, and shoot me through it!

Yes thats my basic problem with other texture packs too. They have simply awesome details that its even possible to mask the low object quality of the T3 vanilla caucasus map. Almost unbelievable that this is possible, if you see the vanilla textures and the outdated map format. But somehow the color and brightness fine tuning dont work if you compare it with aerial photos.

I wished the big modders Mustang, Starway and Barthek would work together to find golden mean, somewhere between them.

PicksKing, is there any chance we could get listed which files belong to each "parent" texture addon?

 

That we could be able to update your wonderful addon by ourselves with the new updates, like the new Mustang's grass textures released.
